The canton of Zug is the richest in Switzerland, with a capital known as a tax haven. Thanks to its central location between Zurich and Lucerne, it is also an ideal destination for excursions between lakes, valleys and mountains.

The city of Zug boasts imposing late-Gothic buildings, including the town hall and, above all, the 52-metre-high Zytturm (Clock Tower), the landmark of the historic centre, which towers above the other old towers in the city.

Bicycles are available free of charge from May to October, allowing you to explore the city and its surroundings on two wheels. There are numerous hiking trails along the lake, on the Zugerberg and in the gently rolling countryside of the region.

A popular mountain bike route leads to Lake √Ągeri via the Zugerberg and back to Zug via Lorzentobel. On hot summer days, the wild and romantic Lorzentobel Gorge offers a shady hiking route to the Hell Caves with their many stalactites and stalagmites.

Lake Zug is also a must: a cruise or a romantic stroll along the shores at sunset will leave you with unforgettable memories.

Also worth a visit is the former Cistercian abbey of Kappel, an impressive Gothic abbey from the 13th and 14th centuries, with beautiful choir stalls and stained glass windows.
